Response to a guest editorial 11/29/17 Albuquerque Journal

A guest editorial in the November 29, 2017 edition of the Albuquerque Journal made several assertions about inadequacies in the investment operations of New Mexico’s public pension funds, the Educational Retirement Board (ERB) and Public Employees Retirement Association (PERA).
In order to address this, let’s start at the top. The stated mission of the ERB is: “Providing secure retirement benefits for New Mexico’s Educational retirement system.” That mission informs and guides all of our activities, including investing. Our board performs its fiduciary duties in this regard by setting our investment allocation and approving investments that will fund our members’ retirement benefits. We invest solely for the benefit of the participants in the fund. Our strategies reflect this mission. We do not invest for the benefit of anyone else including the governor. Any innuendo to the contrary is flat out wrong.
